Devon comes out and says that it is about to get down to the business and hand. Matt and Jeff interrupt and make their way down to the ring. They shake hands while the fans chant for the Hardyz. Matt starts off by reminding everyone of all the history these two teams have had over the years. With huge pops from the crowd, they agree to have one more match tonight. Devon says Testify and they shake hands once again. I feel like I’m 13 all over again, haha!

9:30: EC III, Spud, and Rhyno make their way to the ring. Spud demands a moment of silence for the “tragic” event of Carter going through a table.

He threatens to stand there all night long. Kurt Angle comes down and tells Spud to shut up. He says that his job is to provide the best show he can. He says that EC III can either wrestle or get out. EC III says he isn’t wrestling, but he isn’t going anywhere, either. He then calls for “New York City’s Finest” to get them to vacate. Spud calls them Dunkin Donut Eating toffles (or something weird like that), which makes the cops angry and they proceed to take the three to “jail”. Oh jeez.
